I've made a terrible mistake - in making a really awfully good mistake.
When posing my model in Maya I imported my base colour just to make sure everything was looking a-ok. The face material imported with a transparency - and oh my lanta you guys I reaallly want to re-do the face now! With his teeth all exposed like that. He's so wonderful and hideous!
I am not re-doing the face. but ugh. UGH.
